    I'm impressed, come to the Midwest in the US, around here they have only
    heard of M$ and Cobol. Ironically, Python is showing its age, just look
    at Ruby. Of course Perl 6/Parrot stands to make all of the discussion moot.

    Yeah, that will shut them all up.

    By the way, my program now works great thanks to your sub advice. I still
    have some cleaning to do, like my resize sub abd incorporating file tests
    etc.

    You can see how bad my program is at:

    http://www.perl.me.uk

    It's called ebaypics

    Advice from you in a new thread, would be very appreciated.

    Gavin.

    What's wrong with always quoting "$vars"?

    Don't use '&' with subroutine calls.

    What's the difference between calling a function as &foo and foo()?

    This is what map() was invented for:

    my email_links = map "$website/$_\n", thumbs;

    implementation is, as long as it works.
